Thanks for the comments, Nancy, Tony, John, Peter, and Georg.

After a busy Monday, today I managed to edit some images of my second day visit to Pompeii.


This is a 8 vertical shots pano.
D7000 + Nikkor 16mm f/3.5 F ai'd hand held, ISO 250, f/8 at 1/1600 to 1/640s.


Pompeii's Amphitheatre entrance.
D7000 + Nikkor 16mm f/3.5 F ai'd hand held, ISO 250, f/8 at 1/1125s. ~10% cropped.


Pompeii's Amphitheatre arena partial view
This is a 3 horizontal shots pano.
D7000 + Nikkor 16mm f/3.5 F ai'd hand held, ISO 250, f/8 at 1/250s.


A closer view of the most well preserved seats at the Amphitheatre.
D7000 + Nikkor 16mm f/3.5 F ai'd hand held, ISO 250, f/8 at 1/250s. ~10% cropped.


Excuse me for the big 3000 px images, but original ones were 9000 to 12000 px!


Another great set Jose. I too envision some of the battles that may have taken place.

How do you handle the distortion from the 16mm on the panos?? They look perfect!

Thanks again Ben for your generosity in allowing all of us to use this excellent lens. Clearly it has inspired quite a number of folks to add this version or its older sibling to their kits. .


You are right. Ben is my new "Maitre ŕ penser" : because of him I bought a nikon 85 HC, a Nikon 50 1.8 ais, a Zeiss 85 P, a BMW 530, a Dassault Falcon 7X.....

Well, about the only good thing to happen yesterday was that I received Nikki in the mail. After a really crappy night at work, I came home and attached the lens and played in the fog for a few minutes. It was a nice way to unwind and relax before heading off to bed. This is a 3 shot pano.

I won't have any serious time to spend with it until the weekend, but hopefully I will get to play around the shop tonight. Now, off to bed!

Great way to start off your visit with Nikki!


+1
wasn't sure it was nikki - looks more like a wider angle - kept looking for some telltale sign - not that I know what that would be. Well done Tony

ben

Thank you Ben! She focus very nicely and is nicely balanced on the D800. Thank you again for sharing the lens!

–Tony

Glad to know you're doing your part for the world economy...

This one? I think it sold for $35 million...

Lots of beautiful shots lately. Shot from a little while ago, coming home from the hospital with a new shoe...

That looks like a bruised little toe . . . is it broken?

Ouch, Laura! Hope your feet will heel soon.

Curtis, I love, love, love your leaf-abstracts!

Ronny, the shot of Nitro jumping over the log is absolutely outstanding! Your focusing skills are top-notch!

Jose, the "Overview" is perfect, wow! My personal favorite from this set is the "Entrance": for your excellent play with light and shadows, the almost palpable textures and the framing.

Ron, thanks for sharing the lens-repair-basics!

Tony, love the moody pano! Can't wait to see more images taken with Nikki.

Peter, boredom can lead to really interesting pictures. I've never used a Mirror-lens, but your work makes me want to try one.

Tony, Kevin, Mark and Peter: thanks for your comments on the Pathology-shot (and the fisheye-sun too)!

Georg - the B&W's of the buildings are excellent and not too tightly framed at all. BTW was that reall 266000 clicks or was it a typo?


Peter, thanks! No, not a typo - I shoot a lot. My D200 (loved it as a companion for a D2H) had 150.000 clicks on it, now it belongs to my talented sister who continues to squeeze fine images out of this fine camera (it was never serviced, just like the D700). My D7000 is a bit over 99.000 actuations right now and maybe I will break the 100k tomorrow evening (the local soccer club will try to break a series of 123 days without a victory :-).

Here's one of the images from the planned 266.666-clicks-celebration, that didn't turned out as expected:

some of the gear used in the late 90's - D700, shutter actuation # 266.678 (including Live-View's) - PC 85/2.8 D

Now I have to concentrate on shutter actuation # 277.777 ;-)

Right now, they're saying it's a sprain. I was planning on getting out this week and doing some shooting, but now I've got to stay off my feet, and the open toe shoe isn't going to be very good in the 6-8 inches of snow that's due here...

Thanks John and Georg.

Laura - That looks painful. I am also excited about the anticipating snow. However, I don't think we are going to get that much since it's still warm in the air. Hope it gets better soon for you.

Tony, "out for a stroll" is awesome.

Mark, very much enjoyed the kiwi closeups

Curtis, that's quite a Libyan story!

Georg, the university shot is nicely done, I don't think the crop is too tight. The fisheye beach shot is draws me into the picture very well.

Some jealousy when I look at all the flower shots ... it's still very cold here in Ohio. That, and the grey winter skies, lack of snow (that might change tonight) means that the camera stays in the bag, mostly.
